The Student Bursary Support Service portal enables young parents and childcare providers to manage Care to Learn applications.
Education institutions can manage Care to Learn applications and/or Bursary for Vulnerable Groups claims.

If you are applying for Care to Learn for a course you are planning on starting during or after September, or are applying for a Summer Retainer then please use the new SBSS portal
